Hi everyone, it's officially Fall and I love this time of year. It seems to not last long though around here. Our summer has extended itself all of a sudden and next thing you know it will be freezing! Such is the life of a Kansan though!
I have some Fall cards to share with you today. My first are made from Karen Lockhart's Itty Bitty Scarecrow. I just *love* scarecrows. They have such happy faces. It's been ages since I've seen a real scarecrow though, maybe I need to revive that tradition in our garden. Plus I love the Wizard of Oz so I think it would be fitting to have a scarecrow in Kansas, don't ya think?
Images were colored with Copic markers. The Sketch tips really work great getting into those tiny detailed areas of Karen's stamps. I cut and embossed the image and also layered them onto square Spellbinders Nestabilities Dies. That extra detail adds just the right amount of texture to make the images pop off the page. I tied my images up with Papertrey Satin Chocolate Ribbon and then adhered them to my card fronts. Patterned paper is by Cosmo Cricket, they have some of my most favorite collections of papers.
And here's some Halloween cards I made using the Crafty Secrets Journaling and Images Booklets. They make for easy peasy cards for sure! I added all kinds of little tags and labels from Making Memories, and some sticker sequins too. Background papers on both cards are from Webster's Pages. I love that these Fall looking papers lend more of a Fall theme rather than being bright and bold Halloween colors.
Hope you all have a stellar day! It's nice and *crisp* here this morning, I can see that my flip flop attire will be coming to an end soon.
